Quest For News

The first in-game scene in the QFG2 remake.

Going by my icon down there, one can reasonably surmise my love for the Quest for Glory series of yesteryear. It usually doesn't garner much news these days, but last week there were two things of note (and some more Sierra-related news).

The more banal update is that the AGDI fan-update of Quest for Glory II: Trial by Fire has received a patch and moved to version 2.0. This may be of interest to some (and a reminder that if you haven't tried it yet, it may well be time to do so!), but this also meant there was a bit more news coming from AGDI's corner.

Before working on the QFG remake, they had tackled both King's Quests 1 & 2, and are now returning to work on the third in the series. In case you've forgotten (there were eight of the games, and the last one was worth forgetting from what I hear), this one moves away from King Graham as the protagonist and places you in the shoes of Gwydion, in the land of Llewdor.

This forum post outlines why they're calling it a redux instead of just a remake. In short, unlike their work with the second game in the series, it won't have as much tweaking of the game's story. Unlike the first game, it won't be a 1:1 remake. Therefore, redux it is. The project has been eight years in the making, being worked on alongside the Quest for Glory II remake, but being put on hold in priority.

Also of note is that on the main page they mention this will be their last Sierra project. Sorry, Rosella, you'll have to wait for another team to update your debut.

Then!

Corey Cole was interviewed by a blog known as Ham's Quest For Glory. The interview covers a lot of ground from how he started at Sierra, little jibes that were placed in the games based on annoyances with managers whose names ended up as anagrams for villains, and his current interests in gaming. As Lori has stated in past interviews, that includes a lot of World of Warcraft. He even makes note of how there was once a push to put 'brain' and puzzle games on consoles, though Sierra denied there'd be much of a market for that (which ties into how he'd like to make another Dr. Brain game).

Love AGDI's games! I really wish the QFG series had been updated for Vista like King's Quest, Leisure Suit Larry, and Space Quest were a few years back.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
